The Dunedin School of Art  welcomes the new measures to combat the COVID-19 virus and keep us all safe. Dunedin School of Art is closing its doors to students from 5PM tonight, Tuesday 24 March, so it is important that students collect what they need from their studios today. However, we will be in touch through email and on-line platforms. You must make sure that you have forwarded your  op. email to your personal email, or that you use your op email, as messages for students will come through this address.

We recognize the challenge it offers  a studio-based school and will be working on developing on-line resources that recognize the significance of the arts knowledge you have chosen to study.  Remember, the work that you make represents and engages with our changing world and its values. There are many artworks that deal with this kind of situation, both chilling and supportive, dystopic and utopian,  so feel free to engage in a new strand of research.

We will be in frequent contact, but will use the op student emails, so again, please if you are a student make sure you can get your op emails to find out what you need to know, and also check our website.
